Protea Hotels Honoured with two Expedia Awards

May 2014: Protea Hotels has added two more awards to its collection, presented by international travel brand Expedia.

Expedia named the Protea Hotel Lusaka “Partner of the Year” for Southern Africa, and the Protea Hotel Balalaika “Top Producer of the Year” for the Johannesburg/Gauteng region.

The Protea Hotel Lusaka also came sixth in Southern Africa (excluding South Africa) in the Top Producer category, with excellent year-over-year growth.

Expedia Inc. is a US-based parent company to a number of international online travel brands, including travel aggregator, itself a multi-award winner in the travel sphere, and every year it presents awards in various categories to its top partners.

Head of Online Distribution for Protea Hotels, Clinton Arnot, says: “We embrace technology and use the internet to meet the demands of modern travellers, and work tirelessly with our partners in this.
“It’s wonderful that the work we are doing with Expedia, especially in the rapidly growing Zambian market, has been recognised.

“Ultimately, endorsement by a leading brand like Expedia confirms that running top-class hotels that exceed GUEST expectations remains the core essence of what we do.”
